MS-HAIL Class of 2021

The MS-HAIL program has taught me to face the challenges of healthcare and leadership through direct application of the tools studied. The value of this program for any healthcare professional is priceless. I have discovered inventive ways to develop and grow my interprofessional leadership and apply it to my team members.

The MS-HAIL program provided me the resources, knowledge, skills, and confidence that I needed to take my career to the next level. I felt fully supported by my advisor, classmates, and faculty from day one of orientation. The online learning environment fostered a respectful exchange of ideas and improved my collaborative skills. The capstone project allowed me to demonstrate my new knowledge and leadership abilities in my organization.
